The Wisconsin Department of Revenue says Social Security numbers of thousands of people who sold their homes in 2011 were inadvertently included on an annual sales report that was publically available on the Internet for three months. Stephanie Marquis of the department says internal procedures for posting reports to prevent such security breaches were not followed.
Letters to everyone affected offering free credit monitoring for a year will be sent soon.
Statewide applications for frac sand mines.......over 100. For La Crosse County? Zero. County Planner, Nathan Sampson says that may because the sand is not found in large quanities in the county or maybe the strict zoning regulations. But he says it's not like they don't want frac sand mining in the county.
Some communities have readily welcomed frac sand mining for economic reasons. Others, including Buffalo, Dunn, Eau Claire and Pepin counties and a handful of towns, slapped on temporary moratoriums to give them time to review and update their land-use regulations.
Three young guys are nursing their wounds after rolling a car near La Crosse's Pettibone Park on Saturday.
Among the long list of drunk drivers collared by La Crosse police this week-end was a guy who collected his fifth OWI.
The goal is to help one company start a mine in Wisconsin...and apparently, that can only happen if Republicans regain control of the Wisconsin Senate in November.
That message comes from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, suggesting Gogebic Mining won't get help in setting up shop in the state while Democrats run the Senate. Onalaska state rep Steve Doyle says it's a 'mistake' for WMC to suggest that it only wants to negotiate with one party.
Doyle says the political atmosphere in Madison remains 'toxic,' with both sides pointing fingers at each other. Gogebic cancelled plans for a Wisconsin mine this year, when a bill designed to help the company failed to pass in Madison.
